Okey doke

I know this ability was in the IStory(demonstrated or not is beyond me) however do we really have enough information to create a page for it?--Steely McBeam - (talk) 08:43, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

  • I think so. There's some more info. I'm adding to it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:51, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Come on, lets be realistic here, this page shouldn't exist. i mean the image is just poor, but what it would look like :P - but mainly there isnt enough info. --Lolwut 12:04, 27 March 2009 (EDT)
      • This is a demonstrated ability, so it gets a page. Granted, a better image would be nice but we don't really have anything better for the time being.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:10, 27 March 2009 (EDT)

Common name

  • I think "light absorption" is the common name for this ability. It is scientific sounding, and it is used in Marvel for the Lightmaster (a character that appeared in the Spider Man comics), whose suit can absorb light; and in DC Comics, for one of Kimiyo Hoshi's abilities.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:30, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

Main Image

Did someone not put in a picture for the main image or is that supposed to be the image?-- Catalyst · Talk · HL 17:15, 28 March 2009 (EDT)

  • That's the best image we have thus far. He makes things pitch black causing total darkness, like in a cave when the lights are turned off. I would prefer to use an image of Abe glowing, but we don't have one yet.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:19, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
    • I love the image we have right now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:51, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
      • I thought it was a joke. --Litox 23:08, 31 March 2009 (EDT)

Worst Ability Ever?

Sure, I suppose you could get an edge on your opponents, but is the radiation truly worth it?--PJDEP 00:42, 4 December 2009 (EST)

Name change to umbrakinesis

I guess once the Dark Matters webisode airs on July 24, this power will need to be changed to umbrakinesis.

  • Are they the same thing though? -Lөvөl 20:06, 13 July 2015 (EDT)
    • I'd like to know that they're the same ability first. What comes to mind with umbrakinesis for me is Raven from Teen Titans-like abilities, not what is described here. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 21:21, 13 July 2015 (EDT)
      • Spoilers ahead... I guess that's the big question: not what is Phoebe's power, but is Abe's power what Phoebe has? Abe can steal/absorb light. Phoebe, as far as I can see from the trailers (and obviously we will need to wait to see for sure) can absorb light too. But she can do so much more. She can manipulate the light, too. So the question will be, can phoebe do more than Abe because they have different powers, or because they are able to tap into different aspects of the same power? I guess we will have to wait and see... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:27, 14 July 2015 (EDT)
